Name: Dad’s Pillows
Working Title: “Folksy Fish”
Inspiration: My ispiration was this pin of the Folksy Fish Quilt Pattern by Sarah Elizabeth Sharp @ No Hats In The House.
Backgroundstory: I showed my dad the pin suggesting something like this as a quilt for him. But he does not want a quilt. He would rather prefer new pillows for the couch but as I can’t do those, he is fine. What? That is how his Chrismas present of Folksy Fish pillows was born. I posted about that project here.
Started: Discussion started late summer, early autumn 2017
Due Date: Christmas 2017
Completed: 23rd of December 2017 (for the first batch)
Days till completion: approx. 114 days (counting from September 1st)
Right on Christmas Eve my Dad started investigating how he could aquire more pillows. There was of course much discussion inbetween. Think the same kind as for the first batch… But do you know what a really great outcome is? My Dad does now finally understand the steps in the process and concept of quilting :)
